Integrated Windscreen Antenna Analysis

Many of today’s vehicles tend to include antennas for AM and FM radio, television, GPS navigation, GMS communication, and automated tolling. This white paper discusses how FEKO can provide accurate and efficient solutions in the analysis of integrated windscreen antennas.

Tips From The Lab: Vertical-Mount MLCCs To Save Board Space And Achieve High Capacitance Values

StackiCap surface-mount MLCCs are designed to provide high capacitance values in compact packages and offer the greatest volumetric efficiency and capacitance per unit mass of any high-voltage X7R ceramic capacitors available.

Glass Sidewall Packages Provide Performance For RF Applications

Glass sidewall packages achieve highest levels of hermeticity for hardware in space vacuums and extreme temperatures. Compared to ceramic, they deliver better RF performance thanks to their lower dielectric constant.

Automotive Ethernet: See The True Signal

This application note provides information on automotive Ethernet, full-duplex communication, the need to separate master and slave signals, signal separation testing methodologies, and a comparison of the current directional coupler insertion method and the Tektronix new signal separation method.
